In general: when we say "crew" we mean all those who are, by means of their labor, in one way or another, facilitating study at DAI. More or less all members of our crew have a background in art (we insist this is important to mention !).
By "faculty" we mean all those who have been invited by DAI to teach, respond, review, lead or coach students or student collectives.
Both, the members of our crew as well as our faculty are in majority employed as free-lancers, implicating that they are not paid for engaging with the students outside of the time-frames of "study at DAI". ALL, we are proud to say, are super generous people, they will not easily turn you down if you address them with a question. We therefore kindly beg you to please respect how tasks and workload at DAI have been divided. Thank you for your understanding.
Students are advised to also check our page on Rights, Care and Support page to find out which crew members to contact for personal support.
